So yes, this is another TB site. This one is by an ex tuberculosis patient for anyone interested in TB be they patients or students.
Too many sites are run by specialist doctors or charities.
I had to learn about TB firstly from experience and secondly from researching my disease on the internet.
I want to try and cover all aspects of the disease including
- medication side effects
- different types of tuberculosis
During my research I found tuberculosis to be a very fasinating subject. I want to look at other aspects including
- Fashion – How tuberculosis affected changes in fashion (Did you know tb helped in the demise of the victorian beard and played a part in the shortening of women’s skirts?). Also people who copied a type of tuberculosis chic to look pale and interesting.
- Stigma – How tuberculosis sufferers in the past were thought to be vampires should should in some cases be dug up after death?
- Literature and Art – How tb is portrayed in Literature and Art from Hollywood to Bollywood
As you can see this is a work in progress. My forum is here: http://www.tbandu.co.uk/forums/
